The in-the-hoop patterns are ready to stitch with no transfer needed. The design is printed in permanent color to 10.5"x10.5" cotton fabric. The larger rectangular sampler patterns are 14"x18" on linen cotton canvas. Also included is a four-page, illustrated stitching guide. You supply hoop and floss (and you can see recommended floss colors for each on product descriptions here). If you want everything included, check out the full kit versions of these designs.
